Bayport Ice Report - 3/11

Recommended Posts

Fisherman For a Lifetime

Went out today and saw about 30 trucks on the ice, so I ventured out.

There was about 32" of ice measured on my auger.

There was about 1-2" of slush on top of the ice.

There was about 2/3rds water on the ice to 1/3rd of slush of the top of the ice covered with a couple inches of water. Water was running in the holes swiftly expanding them by at least double on top...

The access is still sound without dropping down, but in a couple days similar to this it may be iffy there.

Use some caution if you go out,

FFaL

It does help. I keep watching. Anyone going out this week, please report the ice. I want to make sure everyone that goes out is safe.

I was out last night and i think that ice is going to go pretty quick with the temps the same today and the rain. Quite a bit of water on the ice last night.. measured about 28" of ice..

Once the melt from land starts rolling into the river, it will rise fast. I think it could fall apart pretty quickly. Luckily we'll have a a couple cooler nights than last night.. Might be in boats in a couple weeks.

I'll run down tonight and Friday to check the ice on the way home.

Hey Big Jeff, I saw you guys out their last night. I came by twice to ask how you were doing and you told me about those funny looking clip on slip bobbers.

I also got to see your friend pull up that big one when he let out a yell. That was one huge slab that I have not seen since I left Georgia back in 04.

I don't think the ice will hold up untill next week or not. Iam off mondays and tuesdays so I may be able to walk out. This was my first year ice fishing the river, so have not idea.

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams.

      Wow Eyeguy you can catch them and panfish. Keep it up and let’s hear about some details.
    • monstermoose78
      The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in.

      Hello everyone,  please check out the fishing report clubs. I believe the first few members can get in free. I hope you are all doing well fishing and hunting. I look forward to reading your reports.  If you any questions just ask. thank you, monstermoose

      Thanks for the reports guys.

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.
